Summary: Great product and easy to use. The Nav 740 GPS has some amazing features. This is my first GPS unit and was able use and even add pictures to the system in few hours. However, I wish there was more room on the 2.0 gigabyte SD card that came with it. It will help if the unit can read and write on the new HDSD Cards say 4gig.
Summary: For the price of $99 w/free shipping through Amazon, the NAV 740 is an awesome buy. I live in the sticks and, other than showing my home on another street (my street is in a new development), this GPS takes me wherever I want to go. Easy mounting on windshield. Depending on the menu set-up for route preferences (shortest, fastest), the unit will sometimes chose a route that I decide not to take. It will, of course, recalculate if you decide to go another route.
Summary: I purchased this unit about a year ago. I am not a "techy" by any means so, I wanted something that was easy to use. Also, I didn't know how often I would use it so, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I am extremely happy with my purchase. It is easy to use and very accurate with directions. I love the points of interest! I can find anything.
Summary: I love this GPS...of course I have never owned one before, so I can't compare it to another one. I don't like the voice, and another annoying thing is it does try to take you around your elbow sometimes....I understand that there are many new streets and it isn't perfect. I would definitely recommend it.
Summary: ALL IN ALL A REALLY NICE GPS. A LITTLE SLOW FINDING SATELLITES BUT LOCKS IN VERY NICE. SEEMS TO BE VERY SENSITIVE TO THE HEAT FROM THE SUN BUT IT HAS TO SET IN THE WINDSHIELD AREA. FOUND 2 ROADS IN MY COUNTY THAT ARE WRONG AND SADLY ONE OF THEM IS THE ONE THAT RUNS IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE. THIS CAN BE BLAMED ON LIVING WITHIN .25 MILES OF THE COUNTY LINE. AS I SAID IT IS A NICE UNIT AND I LIKE IT ENOUGH THAT WE BOUGHT OUR DAUGHTER A NAV730.
Summary: I enjoy the mapless world the NAV 740 allows, but it would be helpful to have a better manual. I used it on a recent trip, and it definitely got us where we were trying to get, but sometimes took a route we weren't expecting. I'm not sure if it is going for the quickest route or least miles (or some other alternative.) The yellow pages were nice when we were looking for restaurants nearby and not in the mood for fast food.
Summary: I too got this because of PC Magazine's review and let me tell you I'm not disappointed at all. It's a great little GPS. Small enough to fit in my back pocket and it lasts most of the day on one charge. The thing I found and didn't expect is a full yellow pages listing which is great if you're in another city or even across town and don't know where the nearest starbucks, wal-mart, or gas station may be. Just ask your Nav740! It always knows!
